You can reach anything if you put your mind to it.

At Upframe we want to help you achieve what you aspire to reach. That is why we built Upframe pre-acceleration programme.

Problems worth solving

You will learn how to evaluate your idea through some dynamics applied to user research and validate your assumptions and find solutions.

Solutions with an impact

After forming our teams, you will analyse each solution drafted, according to a whole range of exogenous factors and characteristics.

Building the business

Using a set assumptions, you will build the first version of your team’s Business Model Canvas and start the iteration process, in order to reach product market fit.

Making it real - with value

Providing an attractive value proposition is always a challenge, so you will be presented to some mechanisms and dynamics to overcome that difficulty.

Relationships are everything

You will go through metrics and examples on how to connect and engage with customers and remove attritions to their purchase.

Pitching from your heart

On our last day, the morning will be dedicated on how to sales and pitch your product, to end the programme with an open meetup and projects presentation during the afternoon.
